Mermaid “The Abyss” 2009.

Acryllic on Canvas.

For as long as I can remember I have been dreaming about and painting mermaids. I don’t know what it is about them but whenever I am asked what I want to be when I grow up my answer has always been “A mermaid”.


“Mermaid Song” 1997.Mermaid The Abyss

Acrylic on Canvas Board

This piece was inspired by a dream I had after reading a book about mermaids on another planet. I just loved the thought of them singing (Siren style) luring space travellers to them.

A beautiful mermaid singing in the ruins of an alien mermaid altar while a spaceship cuts across the sky.

My next mermaid painting is inspired after a rather rough trip home on the boat. I was sitting on the ferry watching white caps cover the sea with a grey sky threatening to drop some stinging rain coupled with a biting wind. What would it be like for mermaid mothers getting their babies through rough weather? Do they go visiting friends only to get caught in nasty swirling currents?

I’ll update finished product.
